VNCI INCORPORATES OPTIVISION'S MPEG VIDEO PRODUCTS FOR LAN/WAN.
VNCI will incorporate Optivision's MPEG video-over-IP capabilities into a video network solution optimized for both streaming and downloadable distance-learning as well as business video applications. Specific to the education arena, the seamless integration of these complementary products will provide schools with a broad range of network configurations to meet evolving distance-learning needs, and provide students and teachers with easy-to-use, TV-quality, multimedia educational tools.
"Optivision's market and product leadership in the streaming video marketplace made them the obvious choice for our new distance-learning initiative," said Stephen LaMarche, vice president of sales and marketing at VNCI. "We are extremely impressed with Optivision's MPEG-over-IP technology and their excellent support capabilities. By combining our unique products and approaches, we can now offer hybrid implementations capable of distributing superior video content over existing telephony and data networks in any organization or business sector."
Michael Liccardo, president and CEO of Optivision, added: "The convergence of VNCI's unique video-over-telephone wiring and Optivision's MPEG streaming video-over-WAN technologies will deliver significant performance and cost advantages in distance-learning applications. In addition, recent government funding in support of programs to enhance K-12 distance-learning initiatives should increase momentum for high-quality, streaming video content in the education market."
Optivision's interoperable, network-attached, streaming video components support both LAN and WAN industry standards, including IP/Ethernet, ATM, Gigabit Ethernet, and T1 network interface, offering a broad range of high-quality streaming video applications and ease-of-implementation in a variety of network environments.
